An annoucement from Health Canada:
The Licensed Natural Health Products Database will allow Canadians to quickly and easily search for more detailed information on natural health products that have been authorized for sale in Canada…
Canadians will be able to use the database to search for information on approved natural health products including authorized health claims and recommended uses, risk information such as warnings and cautions, and medicinal ingredients associated with the product. It will be updated regularly as more products are licensed.
The database will also help practitioners, pharmacists and Canadians determine which products have been assessed by Health Canada and have found to be safe, effective and of high quality under their recommended conditions of use.
Canadians are also reminded that natural health products that have been authorized for sale are issued a Natural Health Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM), which appears on the product’s packaging.
The Licensed Natural Health Products Database is available on the Health Canada Web site.
